About the job

What I do

Civil Service Fast Stream

Skills I use and how I developed them

A wide range of communications, stakeholder engagement and project management skills.

What I like most

The variety of roles and the level of responsibility you are given early on. I also really enjoy that my work will be directly affected by current political context, and that the job you do can make a real impact.

Finding and applying for the job

How I looked for work

I applied for some graduate schemes at the start of my final year of university. The Fast Stream appealed to me over other options due to the variety and challenge of the work.

My career
